Best mid strength in Australia. Surprises my friend that it is a mid strength. Named after Roger Bussell - maybe one of the worlds greatest brewers.

Best midstrength around Australia. Found Rogers so much more easier to drink then the pale ale.

Good full flavoured midstrength. orange light copper colour. small head with strong floral hop aroma. Lacked some body but made up with flavour.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2006 You would not find too many mid strength beers that poured out that colour into the glass. Burnt orange colour, good pillowy head and thought the aroma was of floral hops. Malt and orange peel on the palate with a bit of bitterness on the finish. Bit thin but you get that with midstrengths. Cheers!

Very, very nice little beer that, if you ignore the 3.8% al vol, is a great beer for enjoying at an outdoors BBQ. The best mid-strength beer by a mile.

No where near as fine as the brewers other treat "Pale Ale". But passable if you are wanting an insiped, weak tasting alternative to real beer. Not my fav, but OK for light.

Bottled. Copper coloured. Pleasant aroma of grapefruit. Light bodied, a bit sweet. Hoppy and orangey bitterish finish. Well balanced and very drinkable. A nice little beer.

Its a mid-range beer so it can't be brilliant. When compared to others with the same ABV however it is streets ahead of the rest. The floral hop character of its big brother is present as is the bitterness, perhaps with the body missing somewhat. Excellent as a barbie beer and easy to monitor as there is one standard drink per bottle.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear dark orange color. The nose is citrusy and grapefruity but the body is thin with a light fruitiness. Dries quickly with a light bitterness towards the end.

Amber color. Slight medicine in the lightly malty aroma. The body is light, the flavour reasonably toasty.
